Webster's Dictionary defines tradition, "as a convention established by constant practice." Traditional flies are the ones that are used year after year. They are commonly known and used by many anglers and are some of the most popular steelhead flies in the Pacific Northwest. Many of these flies are also used for Atlantic salmon as well as Pacific salmon. Traditional steelhead flies come in several forms. Most would be classed as bucktails or streamers. These flies have a wing of hair or...

Item #: 120-5 -

Tied on a 15mm shank, this little intruder has all the characteristics of its big brother: it moves and breathes while maintaining a profile. Brett Jensen, Fly Designer: In the early seventies, fly tying materials were as hard to find as a ?Sasquatch.? Back then, the only reliable options for tying materials were from mail order companies. But, from the very beginning, even with limited access to basic materials, Brett knew he only wanted to fish with patterns of his design. Steelhead have...

Brett Jensen, fly designer, has this to say about his Obie Skater: The performance of the Obie Skater clearly comes from the 2mm foam lip tied right behind the eye of the hook. The hair wing adds support and helps to strengthen the fly's stability. I tie this pattern both with a short and a long body. Both patterns fish well. However, I find the short body pattern is best suited for traditional tail outs or holding water that is soft, slow and smooth. The long body version of this fly fishes...

The 1960 to 1980 era will probably be considered the Golden Age of waking fly development in the Pacific Northwest. One of the early pioneers is Harry Lemire of Black Diamond, Washington. He is credited with the development of a fly he named the Grease Liner. Many Pacific Northwest and British Columbia steelhead have been taken with it. It was tied with a black dubbed body, sparse grizzly hackle, and chestnut colored deer hair wing and tail. Other tyers copied Harry's fly and added their own...

Travis Johnson's "Get-Cha-Some" is a careful blend of proven traditional proportions with both natural and space age synthetic fibers. This fly was designed to come alive when wet, swimming with a seductive action. It is at once easily seen by the fish, but the subdued colors are non-threatening. The Get-Cha-Some is a proven come-back fly, often taking fish that that have risen to, but refused a gaudier offering.Travis says, "It seemed that for an entire season nearly every client showed up...

Travis Johnson: "Well sometimes even your pet can be a muse. I named this fly after my yellow lab Henry (Hank for short). He is a wild, high energy, free spirit. I wanted a sparse fly that would produce its own background. (The flash in the wing really gets it done.) The classic steelhead colors of purple and chartreuse can't really ever be beat. The elongated butt with a veil over it provides great visual stimulus for the steelhead. I like to believe that the last thing the steelhead sees...

Travis Johnson says of his Outlaw Fly: I like tying steelhead flies, a lot. I also love looking in peoples steelhead fly boxes. I am not afraid to try something new for steelhead either. With all that in mind, I developed this fly for the purpose of minimal zing body materials to allow focus on the wing and the tail. In the case of the ?Johnson?s Outlaw? I use arctic fox in a bit fuller wing with the idea that it would provide its own background. What really happened was exactly that, but it...

Claret or wine colored flies have had a place in the color spectrum of anglers around the globe. I first started noticing the effective nature of this color about nine years ago. I had two different groups at different times throughout the summer steelhead season that were doing rather well. The first fished a classic Irish pattern called the "Irishman's Claret." This simple but eye catching fly seemed to shine, even when fishing was tough. The other group had an adaptation of a "Fiddle D," a...

Low Water Green Butt Purple By: Frank Day As the opposite hills slowly started to gain definition with the first light of dawn, I was staring intently into my Wheatley box. I asked myself, "If I were a Deschutes summer steelhead, what fly would warrant a good savage snap of the jaws as it swims its way across the current in front of me?" There was one fly in particular that just said "fish me." It was a Low Water Green Butt Purple. The fluorescent chartreuse butt and head of the fly simply...

Steelhead evolved in the rivers that drain the Pacific Rim. And when one dreams of perfect steelhead rivers, you just naturally have to think about Oregon. The Rogue, Umpqua, Deschutes, John Day and Grand Rhonde are some of the better known steelhead rivers in the world. Other rivers such as the Sandy, Clackamas and North Santiam may be nearly as good in their rights. Because of it's geographic placement, many Oregon rivers fish nearly year round. This makes Oregon a prime laboratory for...

Stuart Foaxall, Aqua Flies Fly Designer: I have been fly fishing and tying flies for well over 30 years, but mainly for European species. I took the plunge 6 years ago and booked "a trip of a lifetime" chasing Pacific fish. To say that it has absorbed me is an understatement... I just can't get enough. I spend over four weeks a year chasing Pacific salmon and my favorite, the steelhead. The chance to catch this enigmatic fish that I had read and dreamed about as a kid reading Roderick Haig...

The Muddler Minnow is one of the most popular fly patterns in the world. According to Joseph D. Bates, in his classic book "Streamers & Bucktails," the Muddler Minnow fly was invented by commercial fly tyer Don Gapen in about 1950 to catch Brook trout from the Nipigon River, Ontario, CA. Since then the "Muddler" has been copied by nearly every fly tyer and used to catch nearly every specie of fresh water game fish that will eat a fly. The Muddler was originally tied to represent the Cockatush...

Patriot Steelhead Fly Above, Frank Day & Jacob Noteboom consult the world famous "Fly Snake" in order to bring an end to their lack of luck. Here Jacob holds the snake over Frank's Wheatley fly box so it can pick the lucky fly. The snake (disguised as a common Bull snake) confided that the fly had little to do with their dilemma and that penitence and abstinence were their only roads to redemption. I guess we'll eventually know which angler chose the pure path. Quoted from Steelhead Fly...

Price: $3.95

Item #: SIG1888 -

This may be one of the most adaptable waking flies ever devised. The main part of the body is constructed from sealed cell foam, which makes the fly virtually unsinkable unless weight is added. There is no need for a riffle hitch. This fly wakes best when attached with a small non-tightening loop knot. Kenny Morrish says about his POM Skater: The number one reason that steelheaders don�t catch steelhead on dries is that they fail to tie them on in the first place. The second reason they fail...

This fly looks like the giant fall caddis from a steelhead's perspective. It can be deadly during the fall but it can also look like a stonefly during the spring and summer months.

Kenny Morrish says about his POM Skater: The number one reason that steelheaders don�t catch steelhead on dries is that they fail to tie them on in the first place. The second reason they fail is that when they do tie them on, they lack the...

SKA-OPPER �The Steelhead Popper� By: Scott Howell The Ska-opper is a skating/popping pattern that, probably more than any other fly, defines who I am as a steelhead fisherman. Firstly, I grew up on the Rogue River where at one time, twitching flies from the front of a drift boat was synonymous with summer steelhead fishing. The �Rogue River Twitch� was just something ingrained in me as a boy. When you combine that, with the fact that as a teenager I was certain I was destined for the Bass...
